Beautiful Setting - Fantastic Food

This is a really well fitted out restaurant, perfect for couples or small intimate groups. The layout is unique, it's almost like a maze, this lends itself to providing intimacy and privacy.

The Keg is great because you know exactly what you're spending your money on and their prices are on par with if not better than other steakhouses. Steaks are always cooked perfectly, their hollandaise sauce is to die for, and the atmosphere is intimate. I also appreciate that the servers know the menu and are always excellent at recommending items... More

I got a fine food but the waiter was rushing around. He gave us 15 minutes to finish the appetizer before the main course would be on the table, created thereby uncomfortable situation for the dinner.The waiter could Just slow down a little bit. ....Got a feeling that I was eating fast food.....

We were a group of 6 - 3 children and 3 adults. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. I had a NY Strip and it was delicious; cooked perfectly. Our waiter was friendly and very attentive to all our individual needs. It's not a cheap meal but well worth the treat!

This is a typical Keg - the were friendly and the food was excellent. If you've eaten at a Keg before, you know the meal will be expensive - but it is good. The reason for the average rating is because our server forgot to bring something we ordered, and one of the drinks wasn't what we expected.

Went with a group of 10. We all ordered steaks of various types. Wow. This is how a steak should taste. I had the sirloin, which was juicy and seasoned to perfection, A couple had the rib eye steak which was massive but was cooked to perfection. The service was great and oberall a really nice meal.

As always, excellent service and amazing steaks. The Calamari was very, very tasty as an appetizer and the Teryaki Steak was fabulous. Highly recommend.
